that there has been some slight decrease in water pressure in rockville, maryland, at this point. again, we do not see people who are working to stop this. it can happen quite a distance from here as they make the effort to shut off this water. we want to show you what it looks like here. this is south glen road, i believe. you can see all that water which is just a shame to see that being wasted coming down to the ground from that 29-inch water main rolling down the road here. the good thing is, that this is a very not heavily congested neighborhood. the houses are far apart and it's hilly. that water as far as we can tell is not going into someone's basement at this point. it has not even torn up the road yet, although as these tens of thousands of gallons of water come gush out of the hole next to the road you have to worry what is happening underneath the surface of that road. earlier, i think we have video of what it looked like earlier a short time ago. don't know if we've shown you that yet. we spoke to a couple people who were trying, spoke to a couple people trying to get through this
megan mcgrath joins us from potomac, maryland, are crews are working steadily and diligently on that main. good morning, megan. >> reporter: good morning, pat. they have repaired the pipe and are starting to put a flow of water through this water main, but they still have some work to do. they've got to backfill the hole. they've got to pour in some concrete. they're going to actually encase the entire section in a layer of concrete and put more dirt on top of it before repaving that section. still some work to be done, but the lion's share of the work, the hardest part perhaps is behind them. the big question of course is when will those mandatory water restrictions be lifted? the answer, not yet, but they're coming down the homestretch. the damaged section of pipe could be seen sitting along the side of the road this morning. the new segment is in place, and work crews have begun to partially backfill the hole. the repair work should be completed sometime today, but that doesn't mean an end to mandatory water restrictions. the pipe needs to be slowly refilled and then teste

the state of maryland -- my friend and colleague from the state of maryland has been active in every single issue that we have addressed in this body to deal with jobs and on the economy and it's just indeed a real pleasure for me to yield some time to her this evening because she is always very, very prepared and very knowledgeable and very intellectual formative. at this time i'd -- and very informative. at this time i yield to ms. edwards. ms. edwards: i thank the gentlelady and, madam speaker, i have to tell you, it really troubles me to be here this evening because once again we have to point to action by house democrats to bring jobs to the american people and inaction by our republican colleagues, particularly those who sit in the united states senate, who have failed to deliver on the promise of jobs to the american people. now, when president obama came into office, i think that month, madam speaker, we lost something like 750,000 jobs just that one month. after having hemorrhaged for over a year thousands and thousands of jobs, not creating a single job in this country, sooned the
